CBS breaks out the cops and comedy

Crime, Law and JusticeEntertainmentFamilyScienceScientific ResearchTelevisionCrime

CBS is sticking with the tried and true this season, introducing a new crop of cops, lawyers, and comedic complications. But it's the details that matter: Think Tom Selleck and WIlliam Shatner, or the comedy pedigree of Chuck Lorre. Add in one very distinctive setting and soundtrack and you've got yourself a season.

Mike & Molly - Monday 9:30pmThe Eye brings on a third Chuck Lorre comedy to the schedule to join his current hits Two and a Half Men and The Big bang Theory. This one follows the romantic lives of MIke and Molly, a Chicago cop and teacher who meet in Overeaters Anonymous.

Hawaii Five-0 - Monday 10pmCome on, you know that iconic theme song is already stuck in your head. Former vampire Alex O'Loughlin is Steve McGarrett, Scott Caan is Danno, Daniel Dae Kim is Chin Ho Kelly, and Grace Park is Kono. Together, they fight crime. In Hawaii.

The Defenders - Wednesday 10pmHotshot lawyers defend the innocent -- and probably a fair share of the guilty -- in Las Vegas in this comedic legal drama starring Jerry O'Connell and Jim Belushi.

$#*! My Dad Says - Thursday 8:30pmIn a match made in geek heaven, William Shatner plays the patriarch of the family that Twitter made famous. Expect plenty of outrageous lines delivered with Shatnerian gravitas.

Blue Bloods"From the creators of the Sopranos comes a new kind of crime family." Specifically, a family of New York cops and the occasional prosecutor. Tom Selleck plays the patriarch and NYPD top cop, with Donnie Wahlberg as a tough detective, Bridget Moynahan as an assistant D.A. and Will Estes as a rookie cop.
